4 years we have been together.
I’ve given up family to have you in my life.
I’ve lost everything for you.
You continue to take, take, take from me.
Emotionally, sexually, and financially.
I try to do little things “just because”
Like the back scratch you fall asleep to.
And I don’t get anything in return.
I hear the same things from you every day.
“Can we “do it”” is your favorite.
“Will you make me some food?”
“If you scratch me for 5 minutes I’ll scratch you” – and you never do.
You tell me to take care of the dishes.
You tell me to do your laundry.
You tell me I am a slob.
You tell me I am a bitch.
You tell me that I don’t love you, or care about you.
But if I didn’t love you, or care the slightest bit, do you really think I’d still be here? Because if I stopped caring, you would lose me forever.
And it breaks my heart.
Because it feels like
You don’t care
You don’t love me
After 4 years.
